A Nigerian model, Adetutu, identified on Twitter as @adetutuoj8811, has launched an online campaign to get international pop singer and Fenty Beauty boss, Rihanna's attention for her Fenty brand modelling.

With over 18 thousand retweets as at the time of reporting, the model who hails from Eruwa, Ondo state has the attention of Nigerians with her face which bares Yoruba tribal marks on both sides.

Her tweet reads;

"I have been doing this campaign to get through @rihanna on all my social media handle... Yeah.. I have tribal marks and want to model for her. I need my Nigerian peeps to help get through to her. Please

It's not easy growing up with Tribal marks... . The bullying was much though it hasn't stopped yet... I still get insulted whenever I go out. I want to thrive in what was meant to make me feel bad... I want to model for @rihanna. It will be a dream come true."
